A man fled a police traffic stop — leaving behind his winning lottery ticket
(CNN) #atlanta-ga – It was no lucky day for a man who fled a traffic stop in Georgia, leaving behind what deputies said was a bag containing drugs and a $100 winning lottery ticket.
The Cherokee County Sheriff’s office said deputies were on Interstate 75 on Monday when they spotted a car with a tag violation.
They pulled it over but the man in the passenger’s seat fled into the nearby woods and dropped a backpack.
“Inside that backpack was a laptop, a small amount of methamphetamine and a winning $100 lottery ticket,” Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt.
Jay Baker told CNN.
In a Facebook post , the sheriff’s department congratulated the suspect for winning lottery ticket and invited him to come claim it.
